Description Aims and Objectives

Vision: ‘To contribute towards the rehabilitation of prisoners through the provision of

a wide range of education and learning opportunities’

Mission: ‘To build a legacy that inspires prisoners to fully integrate into the

community, reducing the likelihood of re-offending, whilst building capacity and

ensuring accountability for its own operations’

Creative Learning in Prison (CLIP) was established in April 2013

The charity originally identified 4 pillars of activity being Art & Design,

Drama, Photography and Publishing

In addition to those courses offered by the prison through the

core curriculum, CLIP offers yoga, rug-craft, cookery, photography,

music and drama workshops and the production of the prison

magazine “Bang Up”

During 2016, the charity benefitted from several fund-raising streams

from local community projects (inc. schools, churches and parish

douzaines) which has allowed the charity to partially fund itself

Funds raised by CLIP are forecasted to grow with the planned

opening of the prison shop which will sell merchandise produced in

the prison workshops and classes as well as surplus vegetables

grown by prisoners on the horticulture site

Organisation and Management

Clip has a five person management committee including the Prison Governor and Head of Learning and Skills. It has established a policies and procedures framework and meets quarterly.
